About this ebook

Wanted: Discreet Dominant gentleman to teach maybe-submissive woman the rules of the game. No whips, chains, paddles, handcuffs, ropes, or toys. No nookie. No creepy stuff. No butt stuff. No gluten. Just the facts, Sir.

Serious inquiries only. –CuriousCat4

When I see the ad in the Portland Alternative’s “Love Wanted” section, I can’t resist the urge to respond. Yes, it’s dangerous—as a star forward for the Badgers I have a reputation to protect—but I miss the thrill of calling the shots in the bedroom and reading that ad is the first time I’ve laughed in months.

So I reach out to Curious Cat about the “educational” opportunity...

A few sizzling—and hysterical—emails later we arrange to meet. I’m hoping we’ll have chemistry, and I might finally be on my way to getting over my ex-girlfriend.

And then the gate to the beer garden swings open and in walks Hailey.

My ex is Curious Cat, and this experiment just got a hell of a lot more complicated.

​But I never back down from a challenge—on or off the ice.

I keep my educational offer on the table—six weeks of submissive lessons. Six weeks to learn how to drive a Dominant man crazy, and then we part ways as friends.

What do I have to lose? Except what’s left of my heart?

I love Lili Valente's sexy hockey players. I look forward to these book because they're always funny and they have an unexpected quirk or twist when it comes to the charterers. This one is no different it met my expectations! Hailey and Will should have made forever, but a miscommunication causing a rift, but it's kismet when Will answers an ad in the paper. Now a second chance is in the making, but will they learn from past mistakes? The chesmistry between Hailey and Will is smoking! Things get very steamy between the two. I gobbled this book right up. All the characters had me hooked. I loved seeing the characters from previous books. Also enjoyed the set up for the next book in the series. I'm completely intrigued and I'm going to be eagerly awaiting it.

Pucked Up Love is the fifth book in the Bad Motherpuckers series but the fabulous and talented Lili Valente. Lili is one of my go to authors. I always know she's going to hook me from the first page and keep me hanging on and flipping pages until the very end. This is one of my favorite series'! Sexy hockey players are a definite must for me! Lili's early books are sexy, erotic romance with dominant alpha men. Pucked Up Love bridges Lili's early books with her romcoms. Sexy, hockey playing Dom? Yes, please! Will and Hailey broke up a year ago. Will still hasn't moved on, but after seeing an ad for a Dominant gentleman Will can't help but respond. He wants to help Curious Cat. He wants to be that man again. The one who needs to dominate. But when Curious turns out to be Hailey, he doesn't know if he's happy or mad. Why does she want this? Who does she want to be submissive for? Will can't say no. Maybe this will be the closure he needs. Or, maybe it will be their second chance. Pucked Up Love is an epic second chance romance with a side of Dom/sub and I loved every word. I laughed, teared up, had to fan myself and just wanted more Will! If Lili wrote an entire book of just emails, I would be the first in line to buy it!

Will Saunders has a secret. One he has kept hidden from his love for several years. He has decided to move forward with their life together and keep his secret hidden. Hailey loves will with all her heart and soul and when she overhears him talking to a man about his secret life she is crushed. This can't be the man she loves. She runs and fate brings them back together in a rather delicious way. This book, like all the others in this series is so good, funny, sexy, and a page turner. I laughed and also teared up several times from the love and emotion in their story. This book made me evaluate my own secret fantasies, we all have them but rarely share them with our partners. It makes you realize life is too short and you should always be true to who you are and not hide that from those you love. I received an early copy to read and review and give my honest opinion. I loved this book for so many reasons. Will and Hailey melted my heart. I highly recommend it.

About the author

Author of over forty novels, USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente writes everything from steamy suspense to laugh-out-loud romantic comedies. A die-hard romantic and optimist at heart, she can’t resist a story where love wins big. Because love should always win.


When she’s not writing, Lili enjoys adventuring with her two sons, climbing on rocks, swimming too far from shore, and asking “why” an incorrigible number of times per day. A former yoga teacher, actor, and dancer, she is also very bendy and good at pretending innocence when caught investigating off-limits places.


You can currently find Lili in the mid-South, valiantly trying to resist the lure of all the places left to explore.


Lili also writes super naughty books as L. Valente.
